When it comes to newsy buzzwords, green talk is gold.
And putting a little eco in the economy is the new Wink Eco Beauty Bar in Prospect Heights.
From waterless detox pedicures to Green Glama body treatments, the menu of 40 services is as sustainable as the rehab of this sunny storefront. Note the biodegradable slippers; natural cleaning solutions; and vegan products free of parabens, formaldehyde, and other toxins.
Organic scrubs are mixed at the apothecary bar to stay (see: Soul Shine body polish treatment) or to go. Fanny facials, seaweed wraps, and massages are enhanced with clay, salts, sugars, herbs, and essential oils.
Dark wood and cool green walls create an all-around tranquil urban forest vibe. Request a treatment room overlooking the garden.
And save yourself the trouble of hearing about current events.
Wink Eco Beauty Bar, 602 Vanderbilt Avenue, between Prospect Place and St. Mark’s Avenue, Prospect Heights (718-230-3443). Appointments available now for Saturday-April 6; regular hours start April 7.
